Quality Assurance is central to everything we do

Modern high performance military and space hardware is designed to operate under extreme environmental and hazardous conditions, often for many years, without the possibility of repair or maintenance.  It is therefore essential that such hardware is designed and built to the very highest standards of quality and reliability available within the budgetary constraints of a specific programme.  Spur are extremely conscious of these needs and have developed processes and procedures to ensure that we deliver services tailored to our customer’s requirements.

All processes are controlled by a Spur internal procedures to ensure that quality, repeatability and traceability are controlled and maintained.

Spur is an ISO 9001:2015 registered and approved company and all operations are controlled by a robust Quality Management System built around the basis outlined within ISO 9000.

The Company has been successfully audited by many of its customers and is recognised as an accredited supplier by Space Agencies, major UK Space and Defence companies, European Prime Contractors and Partner Companies.

The Quality Management System, its implementation, monitoring and control are the direct responsibility of the Spur Operations Director, Cathy Barnes, who reports directly to the Spur Managing Director and is in turn supported by the Spur Team of Quality Engineers, Production Specialists and Inspectors.
